Who Plays Wednesday In The Netflix Series?
Jenna Ortega will play Wednesday Addams, the eponymous character in the new Netflix series. On social media, Netflix has already posted a photo of Jenna Ortega standing with the screenplay. Jenna posted on Instagram: “a new chapter I hope I can honor Wednesday Addams.”
Jenna is most recognized for her portrayal of Ellie Alves in Netflix’s second season of the psychological thriller YOU. Ellie was a tech-savvy girl in the show, which starred Penn Badgley as an obsessed serial murderer and Joe Goldberg, a bookshop employee.
Jenna has starred as a teenage Jane in the cult program Jane The Virgin and as Richie’s gold-digging closest friend Darcy in the 2015 series Richie Rich. She went on to play Harley Diaz in Stuck In The Middle, as well as The Babysitter: Killer Queen and Yes Day. She also played Brooklyn in Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous and received critical acclaim for her portrayal in the high school thriller The Fallout.
Who Played Wednesday In The Addams Family Movie?
Christina Ricci portrayed Wednesday Addams in the films The Addams Family (1991) and Addams Family Values (1993). Wednesday should be more comic-accurate, if not darker. Wednesday has a stern personality, with a deadpan wit and a sadistic passion in inflicting damage on her brothers, first Pugsley and subsequently Pubert. As of right now, Netflix is keeping Ricci’s character’s identity a well guarded secret. The sole formal confirmation from the corporation is that she will portray a “exciting new character” in the series.
How Old Is Wednesday Addams?
Wednesday Addams, a thirteen-year-old girl, is obsessed with death. Wednesday conducts the majority of her experiments on her brother Pugsley Addams for “fun” or punishment. Wednesday has attempted to murder Pugsley several times. She enjoys rearing spiders and learning about the Bermuda Triangle. Because of her gothic demeanor, she has a propensity to surprise people.
Wednesday is distinguished by her pale complexion and lengthy, black braided pigtails. She seldom expresses her feelings and is often bitter. Wednesday often dresses in a black gown with a white collar, black stockings, and black shoes. Wednesday will be a high school student in the Netflix series, therefore we may estimate her age to be between 14 and 18 years old.
Wednesday Release Date
Wednesday will premiere in the fall of 2023, with a total of eight episodes in Season 1 of Netflix’s Wednesday series. The first promotional film, published on Wednesday, was a brief glimpse of Thing, the disembodied hand. The footage was shared on the show’s official social media accounts. On June 6, as part of Netflix’s Geeked Week event, the first official teaser featuring Ortega as the title character was revealed.
